Update: A video of the person who threatened a shooting at Lil Xan’s canceled St. Louis concert on Wednesday has surfaced, and in it, he, an artist/producer from St. Louis, is shooting guns into a lake. The video was captioned, “Lil Xan said he wants a fade with me. I’M COMING TO YO OWN SHOW TO SMACK TF OUT OF YOU TOMORROW OCT 10 AT @thepageantstl.” He later posted a photo of himself holding three guns and captioned it, “hi Lil Xan see ya later at your show.”

One of Lil Xan’s representatives told TMZ, “It is our top priority, including the promoters and venue to ensure safety at every show. This was an old situation that has been taken care of internally. There is no reason to fear safety at any of Lil Xan’s shows moving forward.”

On Wednesday night, Lil Xan was supposed to perform a show at The Pageant in St. Louis, but it was canceled at the last minute. TMZ reports that the reason for the cancellation is that somebody posted a video in which they threatened a shooting at the concert.

Promoters reportedly saw the video a couple days before the scheduled performance, but waited to cancel the show until the day of because “they felt it was too risky and didn’t feel comfortable moving forward.” The St. Louis Police Department told TMZ that they had not heard anything about the threatening clip.

This cancellation comes shortly after Lil Xan was caught on video using a racial slur during an argument at a mall. While yelling at a customer at a Taco Bell in an Indianapolis mall, he shouted repeatedly, “I’m rich, n****r, I’m rich.” There is no indication that the threat has anything to do with this incident.

Lil Xan’s tour has since continued as scheduled: He performed in Cincinnati the night after the canceled show, and he is scheduled to perform tonight in Cleveland. Lil Xan is currently touring behind his latest album, Total Xanarchy, which was released earlier this year, and his recent EP, Heartbreak Soldiers.
